the framework of what we talked about. >> i believe that, too. host: mr. woodward. guest: i ask the president about this two months ago. he said the proposals by the simpson-bowles commission included in eliminating some of the tax deductions are cutting back on the charitable deductions, health insurance deductions, and the mortgage insurance deduction, the president told me that those would be "wildly unpopular." they would never pass congress. i think he's right. you need some sort of serious tax reform negotiation that would take months, maybe a year, maybe longer. reagan did it in his presidency in 1986. they were able to lower the rates and are virtually get more money for the federal government. it's harder now, but it's possible. this expression of confidence, erskine bowles and al simpson deserve a medal of honor for survival in pushing on the issues here. the problem is politics. this book is called "the price of politics" because when it comes to political calculations, they say we should not do something painful or, to use the president's expression, "wildly unpopular," he wants t
: alright. mr. woodward. guest: as i pointed out in the book, there is scene after scene where the republicans show that they will not budge on some of these things. in their view, they are adhering to the constitution. in their view, they're doing what is necessary. but the key point is that speaker boehner is at least a nominal leader of the republicans in the house and open these negotiations last year with the president. they're all kinds of offers and discusons going back and forth on this. you can see the detail and you -- you may blameahaw obama or you may blame the republicans or you may blame me for writing this. but this is, if you will, the performance review. this is what we used to always call the best obtainable version of the truth. host: 1 last phone call for you. south carolina. caller: please let me stay few facts and don't cut me off. host: we don't have time for a few facts. caller: first, i want to compliment mr. woodward on his book. i know he is a very intelligent man. he wrote a nice book. the facts, i want to get over this line here. first of all, want
that falls within the framework of what we talked about. >> i believe that, too. host: mr. woodward. guest: i ask the president about this two months ago. he said the proposals by the simpson-bowles commission included in eliminating some of the tax deductions are cutting back on the charitable deductions, health insurance deductions, and the mortgage insurance deduction, the president told me that those would be "wildly unpopular." they would never pass congress. i think he's right. you need some sort of serious tax reform negotiation that would take months, maybe a year, maybe longer. reagan did it in his presidency in 1986. they were able to lower the rates and are virtually get more money for the federal government. it's harder now, but it's possible. this expression of confidence, erskine bowles and al simpson deserve a medal of honor for survival in pushing on the issues here. the problem is politics. this book is called "the price of politics" because when it comes to political calculations, they say we should not do something painful or, to use the president's expression, "wildly unpo
: independent from missour. caller: in the end, mr. woodward, it is who pays for the campaign and i think you know that. first of all, since the tea party republicans took over the house in 2010, congress has the lowest approval rating ever. and after four years of obama, he is going up in the polls. secondly, i am sure that, since -- if the republicans control everything in november, they will -- they will not raise taxes on the rich one penny. that is who pays for their elections. >guest: if the republicans take over everything, it will be on their back to come up with some plan. you make some good points. there is a way. simpson and bowls, on the road to some of that. where we are now is in trouble and be in peril. what i have tried to do -- in the way, in the end, for a reporter, it is not about the politics of it. it is not about partisan positions. it is trying to find out exactly what happened. and there are things in this book that democrats the like, things that republicans delight. it is what happened. -- what republicans don't like. it is what happened. you can look at it and deter

failure to come to an agreement with the president as the biggest disappointment of my speakership. mr. woodward's book that came out this morning, page 326. and i'll make it perfectly clear, where the sequester came from. we've had a discussion over a trigger, but the president didn't want his re-election inconvenienced by another fight over a $1.2 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. >> now, mitt romney, wolf, is clearly trying to take a page from bill clinton's playbook by trying to triangulate between democrats and m arepublicans he on capitol hill. the problem, both kate and wolf, is that the problem, paul ryan, his running mate, voted for those automatic cuts. >> that's a problem he's going to have to face, especially if he heads back to capitol hill at some point this week, which we do expect. it's so interesting that boehner had that page number, right on hand when he needed to use it. but another big issue that came up today, dana, is s&p down -- the potential downgrade. s&p last year downgraded the u.s. credit rating when congress failed to reach a deal. now moody's is thre
by mr. woodward -- >> i don't think you have to chase it. you can probably buy it. i am sure he wants you to buy it. >> he asserts that the idea for a sequestration came out of the white house, if not from the president himself. can you confirm that? >> i love this, too. the president pushed as hard as he could for a grand bargain to be balanced to include revenues, and then for a sequester to include revenues. why doesn't it include revenues? i'll ask you. why do you think it doesn't include revenues? because john boehner, eric cantor, mitch mcconnell, paul ryan adamantly refuse to ask oil and gas companies, billionaires, millionaires to contribute a dime to the cause of getting our fiscal house in order. so the sequester, as it exists, reflects not the president's principles, but the insistence by republicans that no revenue be included in it -- which again, goes back to the fundamental conflict that they would rather have deep cuts in the military budget, they would rather have deep cuts in education, in border patrol, in innovation, in infrastructure, and we know in medicare, than
at the washington post. mr. woodward's 19th book is the price of politics, all about the budgets and the last couple of years with the obama white house and republican house and the democratic senate. so those are the next two speakers live from the national book festival this year. as we continue our live coverage. here on our set just a few feet from the history and biography ten we are joined by author thomas mallon who has written this book, watergate a novel. now, we are a nonfiction work. how do you write a novel about watergate? how you approach that? >> the reader will find that the agreed upon facts, most of the big ones are still intact. president nixon resigns in 1974, the same basic time line. it is not what sometimes it's altered, the history. but i think what they can do with the existing history is in certain things in between. and then try to get an inside the heads of some of the peripheral players as well as some of the main players. >> a republican operative in the nixon white house without a business card bought in the white house directory. it fell to have to be the man who coor

"new york times" best-seller. in honor of your number oneness, i never thought of bob woodward as partisan anything, certainly partisan conservative but he gives a damning indictment of mr. obama's mishandling of the debt deal last year. what's your take on this? >> there are two ways to read obama's behavior, neither one is flattering to obama. obama is a bunkler, habitually pushes for tax increases, doesn't know how to close a deal. that's an obvious interpretation. does obama-care that much if he got a deal? does debt help him in some way because obama has been so promiscuous and reckless about spending, running up the debt, 5 trillion in the first term, if he ran another 5 trillion in the second term, the national debt would be 20 trillion dollars and he would be responsible for half of that. i almost wonder if debt serves a purpose for obama. >> let me come back to that. woodward says at one point there is no adult supervision in the white house. very interesting. do you agree with denesh at the end of the day, president obama doesn't really care, run up the debt and spend

in history, and you didn't, mr. obama. you can take the speech and spin it not much and it is a condemnation of the fact that obama learned nothing. bob woodward's new book indicates that he learned nothing out of the 2010 election. >> can bill clinton move votes for president obama? >> well, he can temporarily move votes. i would say that the bounce that obama is getting coming out of the convention is 80% bill clinton. he is a popular figure for a practical reason, the economy worked. people had jobs. we reduced children in poverty by 25% through the welfare reform and balanced the budget for four years and you look back and say, i think that what it does is shrink obama, and then you have a real president and then you have this guy who is a pretender. >> you talked about the unemployment figures coming out and the worst recovery since the great depression. why isn't romney running away with this? >> this is slightly better than where reagan was than at this point in 1980. people find it very hard to fire a president. the president is in the home every night and this particular president h
be a little tough and say, excuse me, governor, excuse me, mr. president, but i don't think you've answered those questions. >> sean: i love the book. good to see you. congratulations. another huge "new york times" bestseller. bob woodward, thank you very much. for weeks we've been saying the white house has been lying to you, the american people, about what information they had about the attack in banghazi that killed four americans. tonight there is more proof that this was all part of an elaborate cover-up by the administration. now according to the daily beast, who reportedly spoke with three intelligent officials, american intelligence agencies, they knew within 24 hours that al-qaeda affiliates were in fact involved in this attack, and finally hillary clinton admits al-qaeda was involved in the attack that killed four americans. that's what she said earlier today at a u.n. meeting. >> for some time al-qaeda and the islamic magrab and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings from northern mali into northern countries. now with a larger safe haven and increased freedom to mane
woodward book. it details the failed debt talks between the president and speaker john boehner. it details that there was tension between you and mr. boehner that, you did not agree with the direction he was going with the president, which was a deal that included tax increases. does the book paint an accurate picture? >> you know, john boehner and i saw eye to eye on the fact that we don't think increasing taxes, especially in an economy like this, helps job creation. somehow it helps our economy and the confidence level. we never differed on that point at all. it was the president who continued to insist that the only way to go forward was to raise taxes. again, i think that, you know, the budgeteers will tell you, you can't tax your way out of the problem, as i said earlier. the real focus should be on curing the spending problem in washington. that means we've got to deal with the entitlement situation. we have to deal with health care entitlements in order to manage down the debt. that is the first and foremost we've got to do, otherwise you're throwing money into a hole asking people

bob woodward book, he quotes an interview that he had with mr. obama in which the president said, yeah, you know, maybe if i had it to do over, i shouldn't have been so tough on paul ryan when i gave a speech about him, well, about him and the house budget committee, and he was sitting there right in the room back in i think it was april of 2011. >> right. and that was an interesting moment in this book. there are a number of different nuggets that, if true and if quoted accurately, do shed some light on behind the scenes what's going on inside that white house. you'll remember that was when congressman ryan had put forward his budget, and the president essentially invited him to that speech that lambasted that budget. and it was an interesting moment to see the cutaway of congressman ryan in the front row. also bringing that up is the simpson-bowles commission. this is the deficit/debt commission that the president created -- jon: the president created and then didn't take the advice of. >> exactly. he did not -- the commission report came out in december of 2010. he had a state of th
it is in the debates coming up between barack obama and mitt romney. i have a sneaking suspicion that mr. romney will bring that jerusalem thing up. >> you may be right. >>> "washington post" journalist bob woodward has a revealing new book chronicling last year's fight last year over the debt ceiling. it's based on interviews with president obama, house speaker boehner, and other lawmakers who were at the negotiating table. woodward says the white house seemed unprepared to negotiate. "the washington post" also quotes the book as saying, he was spewing coals, boehner told woodward, in what is described as a borderline presidential tirade. he writes, quote, it was increasingly clear that no one was running washington. that was trouble for everyone, but especially for obama. the timing of the book is being questioned because romney is not part of the story. >>> bill clinton took to the stage at the democratic national convention, and he's getting some rave reviews. so what exactly does that mean for barack obama? talk back, next. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. o
out now by "the washington post" reporter bob woodward who describes president obama and then-o.m.b. director jack lieu when they were going through this process on insisting on defense cuts when going through the debt ceiling negotiations. it's clear, mr. president, they wanted to use these defense cuts as leverage to get tax increases. in fact, if the fiscal cliff -- if we breach the fiscal cliff, if we go over the fiscal cliff, it's now being predicted by the congressional budget office that that will drive unemployment above 9% next year and plunge the country into yet another recession. in fact, they project, the c.b.o. does, that the g.d.p. will contract by 2.9% during the first half of next year and by 5% over the entire year. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke has also said the estimates, and i quote, do not incorporate the additional negative effects likely to result from public uncertainty about how these matters will be resolved, end quote. mr. president, we're heading toward a train wreck. we are heading toward a disaster for america's national security interest
